‘An absolute mercenary’ – Many Stoke City fans react as player departure confirmed

Published

on

Kevin Wimmer’s long awaited departure from Stoke City has today been confirmed by the club, with the Austrian now being set to return to his homeland with Rapid Vienna.

The move brings the 28-year-old’s four year spell with the Potters to abrupt end, with the defender having previously arrived at the club in the summer of 2017 from Tottenham Hotspur.

After joining the club, Wimmer went on to play just 19 times for the Stoke-on-Trent side throughout his time at the Bet365 Stadium and as a result of this, he found himself loaned out no less than three times over the past three seasons as he took in spells with Hannover 96 in Germany, Royal Excel Mouscron in Belgium before his most recent spell back in Germany with Karlsruher SC.

Naturally there was quite a reaction from the Stoke City faithful when they find out the news on Twitter.

Can you name the Stoke City player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
